Agroecologist and climate advocate Alexa White says food sovereignty is about being culturally connected to the food that we’re growing and eating. From planting a seed to eating a banana for breakfast, food sovereignty makes sure every step of the food process is as fair and sustainable as possible.
Food sovereignty breaks down into 6 pillars: food for people, valuing food providers, localizing food systems, making decisions locally, building knowledge and skills, and working with nature.
